Sacred Presence with the Dying
Available on demand Through 'Spirituality & Practice'
In this e-course, Megory Anderson will help guide us through what is for many of us unfamiliar territory — the death of a loved one. The focus is entirely on how to create a peaceful and sacred environment for the person dying. These twelve sessions are designed for family members, loved ones, and end-of-life practitioners, and will cover:
- Listening to the dying and what they want and need
- Tools to use in the vigil space -- music, candles, touchstones
- How to create a calming presence
- Prayers and meditations for letting go
Uniquely, this course will help enable you to focus on the needs and wants of the "other," bringing your own gifts of sacred presence to the experience.
Four hours of continuing education credits are available for chaplains.
